316 Tasting Notes
I was looking forward to trying my sample of this tea, because I’m into strawberry teas right now. But unfortunately this didn’t quite meet my expectations for some reason. It didn’t really taste much like strawberry to me, it tasted more like raspberry or something… So, I’m a little disappointed that it didn’t live up to my taste.
My friend picked me up a sample of this tea the other day and when I smelled it, it was just horrible. I think the smell was disgusting. I hate toffee and caramel to begin with, but I wanted to try this to see why everyone thought it was so good. I tried it as a tea latte and it was drinkable. I wouldn’t get it or drink it again though. Yuck.
Flavors: Caramel, Toffee
I am currently sipping a big cup of this tea I just recieved in the mail today. I was so excited to try this one. When I first smelled it I was in love! It smells absolutely AMAZING. So I just had to try it right away. It steeped a brown colour like most black teas, but this is a Pu’erh tea. I’m not usually a fan of Pu’erh teas – especially as straight hot tea. But this one is really great! I definitely taste the berries! Strawberry mostly. Funny, I’ve really been into Strawberry teas lately. Anyway, this has a nice strawberry taste with a little pu’erh earthiness to it. But I have to agree with DT on this one – tastes like a berry patch in my cup :D
Flavors: Blackberry, Strawberry, Sweet
I had a cup of this tea last night, not my first try though. This tea smells like Green Apple jolly ranchers somehow. My friends have said it smells like candy. It tastes good, however, it’s not my favourite. It definitely tastes like apple, almost like apple pastry, but this tea doesn’t have a very strong taste. More watery than other teas I’ve had.
Flavors: Apple, Apple Candy, Green Apple
I finally got a sample of this tea from someone and got around to trying it today. When I poured in the hot water, I thought ‘I can see why they called it Swampwater’ since the colour of the tea is a murky greenish. I really enjoy this tea, and I’m sad that I only had enough for one cup. Maybe I can get one more steep out of it. It tastes fruity, and I can definitely taste the strawberry in this, which is nice.
Flavors: Fruity, Rooibos, Strawberry
This was definitely an interesting tea. I normally don’t like any eggnog, so I wasn’t so sure when I got a sample of this tea. But I tried it anyway and I have to say it is interesting. Takes some getting used to, but now that I’ve had a cup, I’m used to the taste and don’t mind the tea at all. Surprising.
Flavors: Eggnog, Nutmeg, Sweet
Well, without looking at the ingredients, I totally didn’t think this had chocolate in it based on the smell. It doesn’t smell bad, but I wasn’t crazy about it. I was more excited just to try it cause’ it’s discontinued. I had a hot cup of it this evening and to my surprise, didn’t mind it at all! I liked the ceylon black tea and I don’t think I mind the star anise either. There may have been a subtle chocolate taste, which is fine by me! Overall, I liked this tea and I would definitely get more!
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon
